These large sized gourds have been made into beautiful bowls that are painted inside and out after being lacquered.
These beautiful red and blue ones were painted with an organic laca or lacquer (made from insect parts), allowed to dry and then beautifully painted in Oaxaca. The skill of these artisans is so impressive. They can be used to store things or just for looking at. They don't hang on the wall very well but if you added some kind of loop, the painted side would be gorgeous to look at. A lovely, unique gift for someone who appreciates handmade craft.
One of a kind.
